Joselu Mato was Real Madrid’s hero in the win over Getafe. taking advantage of the right of ownership. Carlo Ancelotti allowed him into the squad after weeks on the bench and it was vital for him to get the three points that once again saw him reclaim the EA Sports La Liga lead and overtake Girona. Although the visit to the Alfonso Perez Coliseum was a tough test, they were able to win thanks to the Spaniard’s brace.
And that allows the 33-year-old veteran striker to position himself as the team’s second-leading scorer, behind only Jude Bellingham. with 13 goals in all competitions. Impressive numbers, especially considering he doesn’t usually get many minutes and has to settle for a minor role as the first alternative to Rodrigo Goes and Vinicius Junior. And he is the player who needs the least minutes on the field to see a goal.
Without a doubt, he has shown that he has the necessary quality to play at the Santiago Bernabeu and has earned more than enough merit for Florentino Perez to take up the purchase option available to him. Because we must remember that he is on loan at Espanyol, where he has no intention of returning since his idea is to continue wearing white for a longer time. And fortunately It seems he is very close to realizing his dream.
Because Madrid is very pleased with Joselu’s contribution. and they are willing to pay the ridiculous €1.5 million it would take to buy it as a property. A ridiculous figure, considering the good level shown by former players of Alaves, Newcastle United, Stoke City, Deportivo de la Coruña, TSG Hoffenheim and Eintracht Frankfurt. And Ancelotti agrees for him to stay.
Mato is a luxurious game-changer and his aerial prowess has made him an expert at resolving difficult collisions.
What will Joselu’s role be next year?
Although it is now difficult to predict what Joselu’s role will be in Madrid next year. in case Florentino Perez manages to close the issue of hiring Kylian Mbappe, which is a priority goal. Because it also needs to be noted that Endrick will land in July.
It will be very difficult for Mato to maintain continuity, but he still wants to continue working under Ancelotti.
